Bruce Lee: The Lost Interview (filmed in 1971 --> first aired 1994)

An old interview of Bruce Lee.
The episode was filmed in 1971 and got losed, in 1994 they found it and aired the episode as a tv special under ''Bruce Lee: The Lost Interview''.
All American pictures made before 1989 without a copyright renewel fell in the public domain,Because this interview was lost for so long it never gotten a copyright renewel. So it is automaticly public domain.

Audio/Visual sound, color

I also appreciate your uploading this video to the archives-- thank you. It's great to hear Bruce speak on martial arts as a spiritual discipline, which is really what's at the heart of the practice.

However, this is very difficult (for me, at least) to watch, because the sound is so far out of synch with the video. It is really distracting to try and listen to what Bruce is saying, and to watch him speak at the same time. I almost want to blank the screen and just listen to it as a sound recording, but then his gestures are so expressive (he manages to demonstrate many of the things he is saying even while seated) that the video is an important part of the content. Very frustrating. But I'm glad to be able to see it anyway, for all of that.

Update: A better quality print that is in synch has been uploaded here. The AVI file (video encoded with DiVX, audio with MP3) is excellent, and not too huge (143MB).

Subject: Lee's only TV interview?
According to wikipedia, this was Lee's ONLY ever TV interview (I cannot confirm that). Pierre Burton is instantly recognizable to almost any Canadian. His show ran from early 1960s until 1973.

If this interview is Canadian-sourced, does that change the PD issue at all? I could not find this clip on the CBC archives in Canada with their search engine or google but the CBC's search engine is not great.

Fantastic historical value - great upload - THANKS
